A while a go I asked your opinions about the usage of *QRY*-cmds and the
number of ODP in programs.
Many thanks for replying.

I compiled all of your answers and gave them to the person in charge of the
programming team.

This is the reply we got back :

"The contras are probably coming from people that haven't learned how to
reduce development costs by means of modern tools. Or they don't find that
this their problem"

"Fortunately, we recently followed some courses where SQL/QRY/OPNQRY are
promoted very enthusiastic.
These tools are used much to few, they have a great future"

"We know, some of the queries should be using LF's in stead of the PF. We
promise to put some effort in these changes. Other critical jobs needs
indeed some tuning, we leave this to you"

"The usage of ODP's needs indeed to be reviewed. We've made the mistake to
let Synon handle everything by itself. However, it's not worth to
re-program the lot. In the near future some functionality needs to changed
as well. In my opinion, it's better to create an additional ODP then to
jump around in one and the same one"

"We as programmers are forced ( due to development costs ) to use all new
tools currently available"

As you can see, we still have a lot of education to do :-).

Kind regards,
